Board and organisation

The everyday operations of the Foundation are led by the Secretary General Annamari Arrakoski-Engardt. There are 10 – 15 employees at the Foundation, some of which are working on project base or part-time. The Foundation’s operations are steered by the Board, members of which represent a broad variety of science, society and business life. The goals, schedules and budgets of all projects within marine culture and Clean Baltic Sea projects are subject to approval by the Board. Moreover, the Board steers and monitors project progress and the financial status of the Foundation on a regular basis.
